I just talked to someone at the university in Madison, WI about the boys participating in a research study there. It's about language learning skills and how Fragile X and autism affect that. It sounds really interesting and I'm excited to do it. They would reimburse us all our travelling expenses. The only little difficulty might be that the parent needs to be there to participate in some of it as well, and they probably wouldn't test both boys at the same time in the same room, so if I brought them there by myself, that would be tough to arrange. We could just choose one of them to participate. We could also do one, and then the other later, making it two trips. Sure would be nice if we could get them both done in one trip though. Maybe a grandma or grandpa or both could come along and help, or maybe Mark will still be job-hunting at the time and he'll be free. We'll figure something out.
Oh as usual, when I mentioned they are identical twins, I got the old "wow, you must have your hands full" and I said what I usually say......"yep, sure do!"
